Abstract: We intended in this study to examine the degree of awareness, perceptions and reactions of employees of corruptions practices in Bahraini Banks. Our finding demonstrated that males are more involved in such practices and it seems that there is a considerable lack of awareness among employees on the danger of such phenomenon on the nation economy. Some of them are acting corruptly due to two major causes either because family nepotism or because of the low wage and the necessity to get bribes to cover their expenses. Nonetheless the low respect of the law seems to be also an important reason of those irregularities. Bahrain even is an Islamic country, the values of the society themselves have changed and in some ways bribes are perceived especially by the young generation as a way of life and has not the strong negative connotation in the society as before. Therefore managers should increase and adjust not only the employees’ awareness but especially the level of their salaries proportionally to the prices rising level. Also it is crucial that the authorities should be more severe and rigorous in this matter by inflicting strict sanctions on who are acting corruptly.
